Alright, I have been holding off on posting this because a certain band member still owes me, but since it is another member’s birthday, here you go. Happy Birthday Mike Parisi! Filmed by Jim Mclain, Mike Yoas, and one other guy I think. Audio via soundboard by Eric Bianchi and audience recording with Neumann mics from Jason Ellis. Edit by Jim McLain. Thank Jim and thanks everyone who helped make this such a fun party!

Redrum- Club Me, Sacramento Ca. 1/15/89 Master Soundboard Audio Only Thrash Metal

So I got back in touch with Bobby Whitright a couple of days ago and he was looking for a specific Redrum show. Since I was listening to this one, I decided to post it as well. Taped from the soundboard on a high bias cassette. Club Me became the Cattle Club shortly after this show. Great covers of Misfits and Iron Maiden toward the end of the set. The mix settles down and while it is imperfect, it ain’t bad.

Redrum- Merrie Melodies Record Store, Lodi Ca. 6/18/88 Sacramento Thrash Metal

So this one is kind of a long story so I will try to keep it short. I used to manage Redrum and they were playing an outdoor show in Lodi on a Saturday. I had to work saturdays so I worked half day, then raced over there to see them play. Well, I did not have a chance to eat… and there was a lot of free beer at the show… so unfortunately you get to see some of the hijinks after the set. Please note that CARLOS is manning/directing the camera during most of the after-show stuff.

Redrum- Oasis Ballroom, Sacramento Ca 12/29/85 xfer from Master Soundboard audio tape

I’m back! Man, that was a painful PC transition. Trying to figure out how to manipulate my itunes library.xml file at 1am this morning was AWESOME.

Anyway, this was probably one of the most influential shows I ever attended. I was friends with the band so I was carrying my boom box into The Oasis to record the show. Someone from the band (Vonni or Mike I think) asked “why don’t you record through the soundboard”? I was amazed- you can actually do that? So I ran out to the car and grabbed a D90 and taped over The Faction’s Darkroom album (sorry guys).
After the show, I popped it into my car cassette deck and was floored. I had no idea you could get such good sound from a board tape! So, you are all to blame for these 10,000 tapes now.
Funny side note: years later, I was doing something and absent mindedly let the other side of the tape play until the end. I discovered that the start of the set (dance of death) was also on the end of the other side of the tape! So, that is here for pretty much the first time ever for people to hear.
